Improve your shifting with short shift distance kit
Our Porsche 911, 912 and 914 short shift distance kits for optimal power and better performance driving.
If you are manual transmission enthusiast like we are then you should benefit from the use of a short throw shifter (‘short shifter’).
Short shifter shortens hand travel during shifting from one gear to another. This results in faster shifts. Faster shifting makes it easier to maintain high engine revs and optimal power for spirited driving.
Some advantages that short throw shifter for manual transmissions brings:
- Reduced Shift Distance
Short shift distance kit reduce the distance you need to move the gear lever to engage the next gear. This results in quicker and more precise shifting, allowing faster gear changes. Short shifting is particularly beneficial for spirited driving, performance driving or racing where quick gear changes are important.
- Improved Shifting Feel
Short shifter offers a more direct and solid feel when shifting gears. It reduces play or slop in the shifter mechanism, resulting in a more connected and engaging driving experience.
- Enhanced Precision
Short throw shifters allow more precise gear engagement, by reducing the shifter’s throw. Since the shifting distance is shorter, chance of missing gears or accidentally shifting into the wrong gear, especially during spirited driving, is reduced.
- Faster Acceleration
With shorter shifts, the time spent shifting gears is reduced. This means that power delivery to the wheels can be maintained more consistently during acceleration, resulting in improved acceleration performance and quicker acceleration times.
- Durability and Reliability
Upgraded short throw shifters are usually built with high-quality materials and designed to withstand the increased demands of aggressive shifting. This results in improved durability and longevity compared to the stock shifter.
